Contractors come and go. It’s more common than you think and is done to avoid creditors or past clients; some contractors close one business and then open up again with a similar name.
Some key points about GROUNDS KEEPER and Jay Eriv:
GROUNDS KEEPER was founded in 1973 by Jay.
We have successfully designed and installed over 200 landscape projects in the last 10 Years – Our landscape architect has almost 10 years of experience designing projects for our clients. Plus we have been in business for almost 40 years and have all of that experience to draw from.
Jay and our 3 supervisors have over 100 Years of Experience with GROUNDS KEEPER – This amount of experience and loyalty is very rare in an industry known for the transient nature of the workforce. It may sound old fashioned but we are loyal to our employees and they are loyal to our clients. The amount of experience Jay and our supervisors have with our company simply means you will always have an experienced landscape professional on your project.
All of our support employees have been with us for at least 10 years. All of the dedicated specialty sub-contractors have also been with us for over 10 years.
We will provide you with a list of 25 references for recently completed landscape projects and/or current landscape maintenance clients. We recommend that you ask for at least 10 customer references from every landscape contractor that you seriously consider. Quality companies complete at least 15 projects a year so asking for 10 references shouldn’t be a big deal.
It may surprise you to learn that in a 2011 survey by a consulting company that specializes in the landscape industry that 35% of the companies in the survey had failed in the previous 5 years. With almost 40 years of experience we believe you should feel confident that we will be around to back up our warranty.
If you want to create extra outdoor living space with a new patio, gazebo or outdoor kitchen, or simply improve the layout and functionality of your landscaping by adding or replacing walls, walkways, pathways, ponds, pools, landscape lighting or four season plantings, we can make your dream a reality.
